Well i really dont think he had an option , That ford wasnt going to get close enough to him to hook a strap , and even if it did it more than likely wouldnt have budged him . The dozer was a good deal away , so killing it was pretty much the only option lol. Ive never personally witnessed one get hydrolocked but i have heard of it happening . Ive been bouncing around through ponds and smacked a stump which bounced the floats in the carb hard enough to kill it , never had a problem with em sucking water ,

Bought a brand new polaris a couple years ago like the one Mark was riding and within 3 hours of owning it i had it back in the creek and the only thing showing was the headlight and handle bars lol. Those machines are extremely water tight and damn near float. The only reason it died is it couldnt push the water out the exhaust fast enough . Lifted the rear end high enough so it could push the water out and wham , it fired right up no problems.

Yup , that dodge was in past its headlights , only thing showin was hood ornament and windshield and someone told me it was a stock truck so i figured i could tug it out , Not till after i pointed the rear pinion at the floor boards and shot the rear shaft out the side did someone tell me it had 6 inches of lift and 38's or 35's , and it was burried past the friggin headlights lol . I could still move with just the front axle pulling . That was the night that i went home and drug the 3/4 ton axles out of the shed and put them in it the next week.

It took a d8 dozer down there the next day to get that guy and the rest of them out. The neatest part about that night was my passenger was an on duty shelby county sherrifs deputy ha ha ha , Cody LOVES that blazer.

Yeah, I have a buddy that has a 502 and he always buys extra parts. I thought maybe he had a th400. The Munice is a good trans, I guess with the low gearing that trans would be a good one for mudding.

What year is the motor? All the 91-current year 454-502 takes the same flywheel.
